The Rogue Bar 2.0

This is the next generation of the 28.5MM Olympic bar that helped launch the revolution. Now fully machined and assembled at the Rogue factory in Columbus, Ohio, the Rogue Bar 2.0 represents the highest level of precision engineering with a wide range of new features—including stronger 190 PSI steel, durable composite bushings, and CNC-machined groove sleeves with customizable color bands, available here

Like the original flagship Rogue Bar, Version 2.0 still offers convenient dual knurl marks for both Olympic and powerlifting, with a black zinc coated shaft and bright zinc sleeves. The addition of a groove in the sleeve enables athletes and coaches to more easily identify and differentiate bars by changing out the bands. The bar comes standard with Rogue-branded bands, but you can swap them out with any of the additional color options available, or even use any custom, personalized band that matches the dimensions.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is among the first in our arsenal to use composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to both provide a reliable spin and help extend the shelf life of the bar itself.

The Rogue Bar helped us cement our reputation at the CrossFit Games and beyond, and we believe the Rogue Bar 2.0 is a worthy successor to that mantle.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

The Rogue Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 128.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid all around Bar. Good solid all around Bar. I would like the knurling a little more aggressive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice knurl and feel Great bar. My only complaint is that the finish scuffs up easily just from racking the bar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bar. Minor finishing issues Knurling- This is completely subjective, but I find the knurling to be a bit light. The bar takes chalk well and when you chalk up, the bar will glue itself to your hands. Without chalk though, I find the knurling too light. If you are doing high rep/ functional fitness workouts in which you are bar cycling, this is a great bar for not tearing up your hands. Rating 4.5 stars. Spin- The spin of the bar is not the greatest. While it does spin rather smoothly, it spin is rather minimal. Again, it’s a good bar for functional fitness, but it does not turn over fast enough for a PR’ing your oly lifts. Rating it as a functional fitness bar, I give the spin a rating of 4 stars. Whip- If I was to rate this on a scale of 1-10, I’d give it a 4.5. There is some whip, but it’s minimal. Again a good bar for bar cycling and some heavy lifts, but not a PR bar. Rating it as a functional fitness bar, I give the whip 4 stars. Finish- It’s a Rogue bar. Rogue=quality. Rating here is 5+ stars Noise level- My main complaint is the end caps rattle excessively and quickly becomes annoying. I’ve seen some reviews online (As Many Reviews As Possible for one) where they also mention the rattle. If this is your only bar, you may not even notice it. I however, find the rattle annoying. The rest of the bar is flawless with minimal movement on the sleeves. Rating here 2 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from solid bar poor finish I've had this bar in my commercial gym for just over two years. It's a solid bar, still straight as an arrow and spins well. However, the bar looks really old and worn because finish has mostly worn off where the bar contacts the body on cleans, squats, etc. The knurl near the ends has also worn off from contacting a few of our racks that have bare metal j-hooks and safety arms. That last part is not really the bar's fault, but I have some older high end bars from a different company that took the same abuse and still have knurl intact and finish looking new. For the money this is a solid bar, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for a home gym, especially if used with a rack that has UHMW coating to protect the bar. For a commercial gym, I would choose something else, maybe one of the stainless bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this Bar I've had this bar for over a month now, and can honestly say its fantastic. The knurling is aggressively appropriate, I don't have to chalk up to use the bar nor does it tear my hands up with cycling cleans/snatches. The bearings inside the shoulders (area where the plates go) spin's EXTREMELY smooth, more than I would have expected. Fit and finish is excellent quality, and should last a long time considering I purchased this for home use. What more can I say? I would recommend buying this barbell to anyone. I've used it at home and up at my local box, and it performs excellent in my opinion. Looking forward to the years to come with training with my Rogue 2.0

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent knurl, great whip This is the best bar I've found with excellent (aggressive, but reasonable) knurl and great whip for oly lifts. I find the whip on this bar more to my liking than the Ohio bar (which I've used a lot as well) and closer in experience to the actual Oly bar that is sold (which I've also used a lot). It's impossible to beat the quality on this sucker for the price.
